Head Coach Lionel Hollins led the Memphis Grizzlies to 56 wins, despite losing leading scorer Rudy Gay on January 31st. Since the trade, the Grizzlies went 27-11 (5th in the West). In the postseason, Memphis took care of the Clippers and Thunder in six and five games, respectively. After bowing out to the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference Finals in four games, the Grizzlies brass has given Hollins his walking papers — two weeks after permitting him to speak to other teams.
